Last month was the 10 year anniversary of this website, and I did **** all to celebrate it. Which is really the right way to celebrate a site like this. I was going to do an infographic making fun of myself, and I didn’t even do that. But I am doing something else that has something, slightly, to do with this site, I’m starting my own sports writing course. I never passed highschool, university, and also never worked at a newspaper. When I started this site I was a car park attendant, so you know, I’ve learnt a few things along the way. This scrappy little cesspool was the place I learnt how to write good like. So if you want to learn from the guy who taught himself by writing about a Kallis orgasm, you can. There are two SE London all day Saturday classes available: The 21st of October that has just had two cancellations, and thusly has a shittone of space for an intimate course where you can feel my spittle on my face as I talk. The 4th of November class is almost booked out. So you’d want to get in fast for that. There will be a course in Melbourne for late January. And more courses in the UK next year. For those who that doesn’t cover, there will also be an online course hopefully active by late November. You can register your interest for it here. The course is essentially me reverse engineering my writing, so it’s a pretty horrible look inside my brain that will hopefully explain how to be a better writer on sport. Or a sociopath. The rest of the course is from spending the last ten years talking to other aspiring writers. Answering their questions, doing reddit AMAs, dealing with the odd work experience kid, and helping out my friends. I think there are important, easy and practical things you can learn in eight hours that can help you become better. This is really the course I wish I’d taken back in the day, instead of pissing about here making fun of cricketers all the time. Anyway, do the course, don’t do the course, whatevs, I’ll be off half arsing that infographic that I’ll never finish. View the full article
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online News<p>Every generation births its own dating rules. In the past, there used to be strict rules like: Wait three dates to have ***. Wait till the day after the date to text her. (Of course, it's the man who has to initiate the texting.)</p> <p>Many of these rules made sense at the time, because there wasn't any social media. There was no Facebook or Twitter or Instagram: there was no way to see when the girl you liked was last online, or what she ate for dinner. And there was only one way to go on a date: you had to ask a girl out in person. If she said yes, you would have to either pick her up or show up at the restaurant, trusting that she would be there. (Imagine doing this today, when people flake so often that you're surprised when they actually show up!)</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-2-1500964719.jpg" alt="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-2-1500964719.jpg" />© Pexels</p> <p>Tinder changed the game. Now all you have to do to get a date is to go online and start swiping. Want a date who's exactly 24? Change your age setting. Want a date who's interested in Game of Thrones? Great, write a bio about your theories on who will win the Iron Throne. Want a date in the same restaurant that you're sitting in RIGHT NOW? Easy. Just narrow your location settings to a few hundred feet!</p> <p>We don't invest as much in a single person as we did before. Now, we have anywhere from 20 to 200 matches waiting in our inbox. One of my friends says “Who has the time to go on three dates to find out if we're sexually compatible? If we're on our third date, we're practically married.” She also says: “Forget waiting for the man to make the first move. If we match on Tinder and I like you, why wouldn't I text you with a cute pickup line?”</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-3-1500964772.jpg" alt="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-3-1500964772.jpg" />© Pexels</p> <p>As for the date itself, there are no longer any set rules about the man picking the girl up and taking her to dinner and having to pay. The new Tinder generation of women isn't interested in following an old etiquette guidebook – we're splitting the check, or maybe we're picking the guy up in our cars. Dates don't have to feel formal, either. Plenty of people prefer to have a quick coffee or even try out speed-dating, which makes sense. After all, do you want to waste your whole Friday night with someone you're not into?</p> <p>However, this doesn't mean that there aren't new rules. In a time where casual dating is the norm, it behooves us to be honest and clear about what we want. In the past, people pretended to be interested in serious relationships, because one-night stands were taboo. Now, you can have your one-night stand – just as long as you don't mislead somebody who's looking for a super-serious relationship. If you met someone great but you're still swiping on Tinder, let the other person know that you're keeping your options open. It might be an awkward conversation, but it saves both parties inconvenience in the long run.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-4-1500964857.jpg" alt="New Rules Of Dating On Tinder" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/new-rules-of-dating-on-tinder-740x400-4-1500964857.jpg" />© Pexels</p> <p>If there's one thing that's stayed the same through the ages, it's the fact that people crave intimacy and are hopeful about falling in love. Be gentle with other people's feelings and they'll be gentle with yours. That's the most important rule.</p>
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIf you have ever felt confident putting your inner voice on a sheet of paper that you feel could and may relate to masses, you could be a strong candidate to be a blogger in your domain of interest.

Episode 9"The Writing Room"James L. Conway Sera Gamble March 14, 2016 Quentin discovers that Penny destroyed the manuscript given to him by Eliza in the first episode.

They find that the mansion is haunted by the ghosts of Plover's housekeeper's children, whose Plover's sister had drugged and killed to prevent them from disturbing Plover's work. Quentin discovers that Plover was learning magic and was molesting Martin Chatwin. Plover disappeared, rather than dying, leading Quentin to believe that he is the Beast. The four of them find the button with the children's corpses. Meanwhile, Julia helps Richard by entering the mind of a paralyzed mute woman.
